Landegham – Sohum & Shakti (1999)

● Two 5-octave marimbas

Duration: 17 minutes


Sohum & Shakti is a seldomly performed two movement marimba duet. The first movement brings listeners into a world that oscillates between bright colors and mystical, dark catastrophe. The rhythmic nature of the second movement develops the world of catastrophe. The Axoum Duo recorded the work in their 2007 album Axoum: New Music for Two Marimbas .
